Canadian medical grads lured to US
When Montrealer Dr. Glenn Saxe first got to Boston to begin his residency in psychiatry at Harvard Medical School, he thought he'd return home when his training was over, a story in today's Toronto Star says. But like so many of his Canadian counterparts – 12,040 Canadian-educated physicians live in the US – Saxe decided to stay once his training was complete.
"As I spent time in Boston and Harvard, there were more and more opportunities. More interesting and important research to get involved in," said Saxe, who is a specialist in post-traumatic stress disorder in children. "I met an American woman, married her and decided this was a place where I could really contribute."
One in nine Canadian-educated doctors who graduated last year is taking care of American patients, according to a new study in the Canadian Medical Association Journal.
